Editorial Reviews

John S Hall and Dogbowl with master cellist Charles Curtis gave these recordings a dynamic range that their first release lacked. This is Kramer's favorite King Missile release.

John S. Hall, Esq


John is a cum laude graduate of the Cardozo School of Law, where he was editor in chief of the Cardozo Journal of International and Comparative Law. His academic concentrations were in Intellectual Property and in Constitutional Law and Rights. At Cardozo, He worked as a legal assistant for the entertainment law firm of Rosalind Lichter. John also did an externship in the legal department of DC Comics, where he helped defend the rights of Superman, Batman, and many other beleaguered superheroes. He recently worked as a legal researcher for the film No Precedent, a documentary about the Bush v. Gore decision.

John is also the lyricist and lead vocalist for King Missile, the germinal* spoken word-with-music band, whose hits include "Detachable Penis," "Take Stuff From Work," "Sensitive Artist," and many others. King Missile recorded three CDs for Atlantic Records and several independent CDs. In this capacity, John has dealt with lawyers, managers, accountants, A&R representatives, publicists, record producers, video directors, radio DJs, MTV VJs, independent promoters, record company presidents, and other "important" figures in the music industry.

John is admitted to practice in New York and New Jersey.

* the word "germinal" is the gender neutral form of the word "seminal."

5.0 out of 5 stars Deeply damaged fun February 28, 2001
Format:Audio CD
This is the sort of top-40 music that would emerge in a culture that deified Hunter S. Thompson. It's the funniest disk I own, save for maybe my Holy Modal Rounders stuff; it's warped psychedelia, joyfully infantile, deranged stuff, never afraid to laugh at itself, or cry hysterically, or freak out and hide in the closet all night until the faces on the walls go away. It's also strikingly intelligent, with a very sharp edge for satire, effortlessly incorporating 60's conventions and soooo much more into it's mix. Fun at parties, if your friends have personality disorders or are just... uhm... being "experienced."

5.0 out of 5 stars some funny lyrics and some surprisingly pretty music December 10, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I've had this CD for a long time and never listened to it much -- I liked the funnier stuff by King Missile, and this one is a more traditional music-y album (albeit with some funny songs). But lately I've been listening to it and have realized that this version of King Missile, with Dogbowl's music and the shockingly talented cellist, was pretty great. John S. Hall is a pretty decent singer -- not great, but decent, and his voice works well with the music. The music is occasionally extremely beautiful -- I really can't rave enough about the sound of the cello.

5.0 out of 5 stars King Missile is great! August 11, 2000
Format:Audio CD
John S. Hall is one of the most interesting poets ever to come out of the state of New York. Combine that writing skill with the musical talent of Stephen Tunney (aka Dogbowl), and you've got one amazing record. Poet-Rock at it's best!

4.0 out of 5 stars perfect for saturday mornings November 1, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This album has always been a great one to throw on when you wake up late on a sunny Saturday with nothing to do but enjoy the day. Songs like "Mr. Johnson," "Margaret's Eyes," "Hemophiliac of Love," and "WW3 is a Giant Ice Cream Cone" are bouncy and bright, like a chamber pop Velvet Underground -- yet possessed of an off-kilter worldview that borders on obscene societal menace. My morals are compromised!

The last song is just beyond words...
